many departments throughout government, has numbers of challenges. we saw systemic issues that nide to be addressed and they're in the process of being addressed right now. our nation has budgetary constraints, which means that in all of these departments, creativity is going to have to be utilized to make sure we make the most of what we have and making sure that our u.s. interests are put forth. we have a world that is a dangerous world. and things continue to come over the transom. sometimes it's at surprising times. i know as secretary of state, you're going to have to lead our country in addressing those as they come about. i do hope that you'll work closely with this committee as you have worked very closely with this committee over the last many years. and helping us work with you to make sure that as we move ahead, we move ahead together. and that it's seamless. we have many challenges, and i know on monday, president obama said that america will remain the anchor of strong challenges in every corner of the globe. and we will renew those institutions that extend our capacity
, it was very different from the way he, you know, governed for the last four years or attempted to govern. he came at it from sort of a centrist, pragmatist approach, and it didn't work out so well for him a lot of the times. he faced a congress in republican hands for the last two years in the house that did not, you know, accept his agenda or pass it through the way he would like it. so i think he learned from this election, gave him the confidence to say the election delivered a mandate for my vision of government, my vision of politics, one that involves gay rights, immigration, climate change, an issue that he hasn't really spoken of since his attempts to deal with it in 2009, fell short. so this was really a different president coming out, using the election as a turning point for his agenda and really making clear that that cautious pragmatist of the last four years, that often came out, is going to give way to someone who is unabashedly starting negotiations from a more progressive liberal standpoint than he was willing to do in the recent past. >> not surprisingly, there's been some
and it needs to be part of the strategy that make sure as we support alternative governments and the rebels that there is a strong priority in protecting the source of these weapons not ending up harming americans or harming our interests. >> well, senator, you're absolutely right. one of the reasons that we and other government agencies is exactly that, we have a concerted effort to try to track down and find and recover as many man pads and other dangerous weapons as possible. libya was a wash in weapons before the revolution. obviously there were additional weapons introduced. but the vast, vast majority came out of gadhafi warehouses and as they were saying, liberated and then went on the black market. were seized by militias and seized by other groups and have made their way out of libya into other countries in the region. and have their made way to syria, we believe. it is a red line for this administration with respect to syria concerning the use of chemical weapons. syria as you probably know in addition to having the fourth largest army before this revolution, has a very significan
wanted. and how the government would verify the enforcement that has been enhanced they're describing in this draft so far. take a listen to what bob corker said on fox yesterday on "get your response." >> details matter. i think right now they're at the talking point stage and this needs to be reduced to legislation. the last time this blew up was when it was reduced to legislation. so it's my hope that we will come up with a bipartisan solution. >> nick, what are some of the details you think that, look, it's four pages right now. we're early on. what details need to be hammered out? >> the basic thing is that first the security measures to reduce immigration are being -- that has to be worked out first. plus limitations on hiring of illegal immigrants. only when that is in place do you begin to have this pathway to citizenship. i think that hammering out those security details, determining what is enough, is going to be really tough. but, you know, i really -- it really does feel to me as if right now the democrats desperately would like this legacy issue and republicans desperatel
. it was older senators versus younger ones. these new senators who have been governing or come over from the house and are unwilling to put up with the old ways in the senate. i think this is the first step toward a process to make the senate more functional. >> susan page, ryan grim, thank you both. >>> a new mexico lawmaker is under fire for proposing legislation that essentially bans an abortion after rape because it classified it -- would classify it as a felony for tampering with evidence. republican state representative kathryn brown says the measure is not intended to punish rape victims. she said the intent is to deter rape and cases of incest. the rapist, not the victim, would be charged with tampering of evidence. meantime, thousands of abortion opponents are gathering in washington, d.c., for a new rally. the demonstration coincides with the 40th anniversary of roe v. wade which legalized abortion. d, and got a discount just for being the good driver i've always been. i'm just out here, snap-shooting it forward. you don't want to have to pay for other people's bad driving, do
